IMO, find has its place and so does mlocate. I still use locate myself fairly
regularly (perhaps a couple/few times a month?) on my laptop and I have been
known to adjust PRUNEPATHS. As said by another elsewhere, even if it was moved
out of standard we would still want to address the bugs so I'd just assume it
stay in standard.
